This is the second marriage for both Feliciano Malunes, 73, and Estelita Setias, 62, of Purok Sto. Niño, Brgy. Pahanocoy, Bacolod City who were among the 755 couples who participated in the “I do, I do: Araw ng PAG-IBIG” mass wedding officiated by Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday at the government center.

Malunes and Setias, who were declared the oldest couple, had been living together for three years before they decided to get married since their families did not oppose their relationship. moremoremore

‘Set politics aside
during calamities’

Vice President Jejomar Binay yesterday appealed to politicians to set aside politics during times of calamities and concentrate their efforts on helping their constituents who are suffering.

He said he is saddened that some relief assistance being sent to the victims of the magnitude 6.9 earthquake in Oriental Negros are being blocked. “Even the water sent to the victims are being hi-jacked,” he added.

Binay, who was in Bacolod City yesterday as the principal sponsor of the 755 couples who joined the mass wedding sponsored by the Pag-Ibig Fund, said he hopes there will be no politics involved in the distribution of relief assistance to the victims who are already in a pitiful state.moremoremore
